Fira is the capital town of Santorini and it’s the place with all the buzz and shops. This is a list of the best hotels in Fira Santorini.

So…you are possibly looking for the best area to stay in Santorini and Fira capital town popped in, right? Or you are maybe wondering which one is a better place to stay: Fira or Oia ?

Even though Fira is the capital and the largest town of the island, there are some really impressive hotels with amazing views to the caldera and the volcano that won’t disappoint you.

At Fira, you will literally have everything at your doorstep: bars, shops, restaurants, clubs, street food (aka souvlaki) and …lots of tourists too unfortunately.

BEST HOTEL IN FIRA: Cosmopolitan Suites

Or you can just stay at Imerovigli or Oia.

However, most of the hotels on my list are not disturbed by the people passing by, as most of them are very well protected and seclusive hanging by the dramatic cliff or a bit furhter away from the main Fira street.

I believe that the best hotel in Fira is Cosmopolitan Suites  but to be totally honest there are so many good hotels and in Fira that it will be difficult to pick one.

Most of the hotels in Fira have stunning volcano views and the best thing about Fira is that you will be in the centre of everything. All transportation hubs and nightlife is mainly in Fira so it will be very easy to reach the beaches or even Oia, whenever you want. However, if you are looking for a more quiet area I cannot recommend Imerovigli high enough as it is still very close to Fira but it’s more like a tiny cute suburb that has the same views, even more amazing hotels but it’s super quiet and relaxing (it’s also ideal for a honeymoon in Santorini).
